Changing Admission Criteria for PG Courses



Apanel of Vice Chancellors, headed by BB Bhattacharya (Ex-Vice Chancellor of  Jawaharlal Nehru University), has submitted an interesting report to the HRD ministry. The report has recommended that 50 per cent weightage should be given to undergraduate scores and the remaining 50 per cent to common entrance test scores for admission into postgraduate programmes for all Central universities in India. HRD Minister Kapil Sibal has planned to commence common admission for MPhil and Phd programmes by 2012 at 40 of India’s Central universities. Earlier the panel had decided to give 30 per cent weightage to undergraduate scores for master’s programmes, master’s scores for Mphil programmes, and Mphil scores for Phd programmes.
